u-blox and Arvento announce launch of new vehicle tracking system

imt.x1 uses u-blox positioning technology to deliver high levels of positioning sensitivity and accuracy.

Thalwil, Switzerland – July 23, 2019 – u-blox (SIX:UBXN), a leading provider of positioning and wireless communication technologies and Arvento Mobile Systems, a global pioneer in vehicle telematics and fleet management technology, announce the imminent launch of the brand new imt.x1 vehicle tracking system.

Arvento’s imt.x1 is highly differentiated from other vehicle tracking devices on the market, thanks to its 6-axis Gyro sensor which can sense 3-dimensional movement caused by emergency acceleration, panic braking and directional yaw and drift. With connectivity options including dual CANBus and Bluetooth, the system is also eCall compatible and captures and provides data for accident analysis and other vehicle tracking functions. The system also uses the next generation powerful Arm® based microcontroller.

This latest launch is yet another product of a successful, 8-year strategic partnership between Arvento and u-blox. “u-blox is more than a supplier,” said Özer Hıncal, Arvento’s General Manager. “As a global leader in the IoT industry providing high-performance IoT modules, platforms, and support services, u-blox is our trusted solutions partner, working closely with us to address customer demands and issues.”

As for previous Arvento products, collaboration with u-blox was a key factor in the imt.x1 product development process and the system’s high position sensitivity and accuracy are based on integration of u-blox’s 2G, 4G and 5G-ready cellular modules as well as GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite Systems) modules.

The development of the imt.x1 aligns perfectly with Arvento’s vision and mission as a developer of advanced fleet telematics and vehicle tracking devices and will be available from August 2019.
